MPs begin debate on proposed amendment to Labour Code

The Slovak Parliament resumed its tenth session on May 16 by opening a debate on the proposed amendments to the Labour Code that were drafted by the Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Ministry.

In his opening statements, parliamentary Vice-Chairman Miroslav Číž of the ruling Smer party criticized the opposition's stance on the Code amendment, describing it as neo-liberal.

"For employees, 'rigid' laws are hard-won social laws," he said in response to criticism that the proposed amendments would reduce flexibility on the labour market.
